Poiana Brasov is one of the best winter resorts in Romania since it boasts 8 ski slopes of various difficulty degrees (one special run for slalom, an olympic run, three downhill and giant slalom runs...).
We quarantee the lifting up your family! is the slogan of Ana Hotels, the cable cars administrator in Poiana Brasov.
From up here you can admire the wonderful view. During the summer time the mountain lovers can wander on the marked trails up to the Timis Valley or on the Tampa Mount and during the winter time, the white sport passionates benefit from a number of 9 ski slopes with diferent diffiulty degrees: from very easy to very dificult.
One great mountain (Postavarul) surrounds half of the resort offering some of the wonderful skiing you will ever find. But do not worry if you are not an expert - beginners have their very own slopes. Intermediates will find plenty of lovely runs through Sulinar or Ruia. The skiing in the area is an intermediate's paradise with lots of lovely wide blues and reds for which the term "motorway skiing" was invented. More advanced skiers will find blacks on Subteleferic or Lupului.
The resort also offers winter camping trips, snowboarding and winter snowshoe trips in the Postavarul area.
The action doesn't slow down when the sun falls below the mountain. Bradul offers you the best night skiing you ever had.
The wide gentle nursery areas in the center of the resort and the plateau at the top of the mountain provide areas ideal for beginners. Very quickly, beginners will progress to skiing back to the village on the confidence building blue run from Cristianul Mare, which provides that vital link between nursery slopes and 'skiing the mountain.'
For intermediates there are three great red runs over varied terrain on which you can really build your technique and more importantly, let go and really enjoy your skiing.
Advanced skiers will find Poiana Brasov somewhat limited, as there are few challenging runs.
